The object of this experiment was to ascertain the feeding value of silage made from corn cut at different stages of growth. In other feeding trials made at this Station it has been shown that corn silage when fed alone without other supplementary feeds produces very satisfactory gains and at a comparatively low cost. Sometimes corn does not mature or is frosted before being put into the silo. These feeding trials were conducted to determine the feed value of corn silage for steers when made under the following conditions:
1. When in the blister or milk stage.
2. When in the dough stage.
3. When in the glazed or dented stage.
4. When well matured but frosted.
